Advice to law firm management: Look at this as an opportunity to live a more slow and laid back life. Working here has a serene feeling that is less stressful than other firms so use it to your advantage and get great experience while working here.

Pros: The firm is older so it is a settled laid back environment. It is consistent in the work load and has a set routine. They work with you to be flexible if you need different hours. The office environment is a friendly and positive one. The attorneys really help each other and are friends. They look to invest in their people.

Cons: The building and equipment is old so working on the computers can be slow which holds you up with getting work done quickly. Firm is on the lower end of the pay scale for this type of work.

Summer associate program


Our summer program leads summer associates through an exploration of all aspects of intellectual property law during an intensive ten week program. Our goal is to provide an unforgettable experience where students gain valuable work experience and develop a real-world view about how a law firm works as a whole.

After completion of their second summer, local law students may continue to work with the firm on a part-time basis during the academic school year. Students from outside the area may assist with projects by telecommuting after they return to school. Based upon individual circumstances, it is possible to work with the firm on an on-going basis from the first summer up to joining the firm as a new attorney. This continuing relationship with the firm facilitates the transition from law clerk to attorney. With an intensive training and development program, challenging work assignments, mentoring, hands-on client experiences, and ample opportunities for social interaction, summer associates are equipped to reach their full potential.
